CURRICULUM

The Novus Academy has a creative, supportive, and innovative learning environment where all students have the opportunity to find success. We use a variety of multi-sensory instructional approaches and differentiate our curriculum to meet the needs of each individual learner.

Novus Academy curriculum standards correlate with the Texas Education Agency “Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills” (TEKS). The Common Core Standards are also considered when planning instruction. The Novus Academy staff differentiates instruction based on the needs of our students. Accommodations and interventions are provided as needed to ensure student success.

Novus Academy faculty understands that no two children learn, develop, or mature at the same rate. Learning differences touch not only academic skills, but also the entire child and his or her family. Whatever the specific stumbling blocks to learning, frustration and uncertainty almost always accompany them. At The Novus Academy, full attention is given to the student. Individual areas of strength are celebrated, struggles identified, and learning programs carefully developed.

Parent education is a crucial element for helping families understand the needs of their children, especially if they are struggling. Students need to see their parents as lifelong learners; so, it is vital for parents to attend book clubs, workshops, and other opportunities to strengthen their skills as parent advocates for their children.

Our focus in High School is to prepare students for life after high school graduation and their transition to adulthood. Some of our students choose to matriculate to colleges and universities. Others select post-secondary educational and training opportunities to prepare for their professions and careers. Some may elect to move directly into the workplace.
